Keith Locke will be giving a PowerPoint presentation on the 'Geopolitics of Oil'
The talk looks at the problems in the world through the lens of oil politics - past and present. Learn why wars are often fought over oil, and why even the countries that have oil are often burdened by authoritarian government and social inequality.
Keith explains how Peak Oil will increase contention for this scarce resource, but is optimistic that we can achieve a more peaceful and equitable world, using more sustainable energy and less beholden to oil interests.
Other speakers: Jeff Smith from Transition Towns & David Hay
